Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing – May 2, 2012

Song: It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
We’re going to sing a song
And it won’t take long
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing Thing Time

Fingerplay: This is Big Big Big x2
This is big, big, big
This is small, small, small
This is short, short, short
This is tall, tall, tall
This is fast, fast, fast
This is slow, slow, slow
This is yes, yes, yes
This is no, no, no

Fingerplay: Two Little Bluebirds x2
Two little bluebirds sitting on a hill
One named Jack, one named Jill
Fly away Jack, fly away Jill
Come back Jack, come back Jill

Song: Reach for the Ceiling
Reach for the ceiling
Touch the floor
Stand up again
Let’s do some more
Touch your head
Then your knees
Up to your shoulders
If you please
